Hi. I’m Paul M. Guyet.
I’m a professional on screen and voice actor living in New York City.
For the short version aka the “all thriller, no filler” version of this site, head to my tumblr.
I AM URGOT!!!
I know what you’re thinking, “what in the hell is an urgot?” Well, it turns out he’s this monstrous dude from the MOBA, League of Legends, and, in late April, I flew out to LA to work with folks from Riot Games to recreate his vibe. It’s…pretty dark stuff and some of the most fun I’ve had doing VO.
Here’s some of his stuff.
House of Fans 2017!!!
This time around, we are in boxes…in a box. It’s hip…to be square.
Phil Tucker’s The Empire of the Dead audio book available now
My first work with Audible is available for purchase now. Ocean’s 11 + ancient Sumeria narrated by me. Can an audio book be too good? Give it a listen.
You & Me Available For Screening
My first feature, written by Hillary and Alex Baack and directed by Alex Baack, is available for festivals. For a screener link, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m in AdAge!
Coming off what I’m going to call my “Oscar win” (see below), I’ve just recently been featured in an Advertising Age article about pharma character voices; specifically my (Cannes Grand Prix award -winning) work with AstraZeneca on “Take It From A Fish” and my time as Captain Zantac. You can check it out here.
Walmart + The Oscars + Me
Yeah…I’m…I’m going to be on the Oscars. Talking about Walmart’s “The Receipt” project. So. Check that out.
2017 Andy Awards
Had the pleasure of working with the folks at Deutsch to create one of this year’s call for entries for the 2017 Andy Awards. I got to portray one of the greatest villains in my industry: the Uncaring Creative Director. The spot also features Burger King Global Marketing SVP, Fernando Machado- who breaks my neck and tosses my body out a window.
It’s called “wish fulfilment”, folks.

I sound the way these people look. Check it.
Me + Droga5 = BFF
My third project with the outstanding creatives at Droga5.
Yes. I am, indeed, Captain Zantac, the little firefighter that helps to put out tummy fires. Apparently, you can see me in drug stores in the coming months. Here’s the first TV spot.
“Erase” music video wins contest!
Hope you’re not sick of news relating to They Might Be Giants yet, because the video I did for their “Erase” video contest was selected as winner!
Directed by myself and my wife, shot and edited by long time collaborator, Phil Maniaci, animated by Noelle Smith, and starring a whole slew of stupidly talented actors.
2015 Career Highlights
NYCC 2015 Coverage
Was lucky enough to cover New York Comic Con again this year! Here’s my interview with the creators of The Venture Bros.
For more, go here. Seriously.
Interview with John Linnell of They Might Be Giants
After over two decades of listening to and loving their music, I had a chance to interview one of my favorite artists.
Two things you should know: I did not throw up and I was not wearing pants.
Interview with Bill Plympton
I had the pleasure of interviewing indie animation god, Bill Plympton, a few weeks ago for his new (really excellent) feature film, Cheatin‘. HE DREW ME A FISH!
It was pretty cool.
The 2015 Radio Mercury Awards
The RMAs support and reward innovative, inspiring creative radio ads (my Target Everyday Collection “Tomato” spot won one back in 2012). For their call to entry this year, I helped Chief Judge, Jim Elliott (newly appointed Global CCO at Arnold Worldwide) explain what they never want to see in a radio ad. I’ve been dealing with the brand of shoddy copy that’s parodied in this video for over a decade now, and getting to lampoon it was a true joy. Here’s hoping we in the industry will see more original and interesting themes and ideas in 2015…or, you know, more conversational, friendly, not-announcery copy…whatever.
The Radio Mercury Awards take place in New York City on June 3rd.
Special thanks to Roger Becker of Just Voices for pointing the RMA folks in my direction.
University of Iowa Health Care
I’ve been with these guys (as well as the Miriam Hospital, the Rhode Island Hospital, and other Lifespan stuff) for a while now, and I love their work.. The sincerely will burn your cynicism to ASHES.
Wallow in my greatness!
Here are my 2014 career highlights.
LensCrafters Global “Eye Love” TV campaign
I enjoyed the simple beauty of the copy and I think I managed to bring it out. Check it out here.
New short film, “Spam”, SWEEPS THE 2014 24 HOUR FILM FESTIVAL!
New York Comic Con 2014 – The Interviews
Interviews with cast and creators of Adventure Time, Robot Chicken and more coming soon.
Jockey – Supporting Greatness
Here’s me doing a bad Nick Offerman impression. For money.
Replace “greatness” with “men’s junk” and the spot gets a lot less obtuse and a lot funnier.
digressive_obscenity – My very own podcast, which won the Geekie Award for “Geekiest Guest Episode” and which was nominated for “Best Podcast” at the 1st Annual Geekie Awards (picture below). The first wave of episodes is up and I’m almost through with my second wave. Here is the podcast’s website and here is where you can subscribe.
“The Everyday Collection” by Target – With the help of Radio Mercury Award-winning ad agency, mono, I have invaded the Great White North with my sexy, sexy voice talking all sexy on the radio! Listen to the sexy! Target Canada 1, Target Canada 2. And here are the brand new spots (released at the start of September) that are currently airing on internet radio (Spotify, Pandora, etc.) and non-internet radio: Bertolli Tomato & Basil Sauce, Coke Zero, and Pop Tarts Gone Nutty.
Tomcat presents Dead Mouse Theatre
I’m the announcer (and old timey radio announcer) in the new, controversial Tomcat TV spots. TOO HOT FOR YOU!!!
Check out more of this dark and brilliant campaign from innovative ad folk Barton F. Graf 9000 here.
Toyota “Sick Day” radio spot – I sure sound like I know what the hell paddle shifters are, don’t I? I also play the guy with bad breath in the right channel. Two words: Multi. Talented.
UNMAS (United Nations Mine Active Service) “Sweeper” project – At the end of February, I had the honor of working on what might be one of my first meaningful voice over project, that of the UNMAS “Sweeper” project, which debuted on the Day of International Mine Awareness (April 4th), at New York City’s New Museum. In a nutshell, it’s a program designed to help de-mine the planet of its over 110 million active mines, IEDs and unexploded ordnance. You can read a write up here and experience a part of the project by downloading the app and donating to the cause here.
They Might Be Giants – “Am I Awake?” music video
Selected as one of sixteen finalists in the They Might Be Giants “Am I Awake?” video contest and then awarded one of only two Honorable Mentions by Judge John Hodgman:
“HONORABLE MENTION: Paul Guyet, for the video I call ‘Paul and Evil Paul.’ …Paul’s ideas are great, and Paul himself is an amazing presence on film–just such a lovable sasquatch.”
The Speakaboos iPad app has officially launched! Updates occur every week or so with new stories and songs and whatnot, many of which feature me doing insane character voices. You can download the app here or check out the web site here. And here is my interview with Speakaboos’ executive content producer, Amy Kraft.
Suffolk’s Bravest First Responders Emergency Services (FRES) PSA – If you live on Long Island or…on the Suffolk’s Bravest web site, then you can now hear me promoting recruitment for volunteer firefighters and volunteer EMS personnel. Which is good. Check out the original artwork from Marvel Comics artist, Bong Dazo (Deadpool, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Avengers: The Initiative, Thunderbolts) and that thunderous score that will have people knocking over their televisions in order to rush out and become firefighters / EMS volunteers. And I helped.
“Too Tall” – A short film, co-written and co-starring me. It was created for the 24 Hour Film Race and was selected as one of the top 20 films (out of over a hundred entrants). While the film itself is totally SFW…the themes therein will blow your mind with how horrifying and sexy they are. I’d say 92% horrifying, 8% sexy…with a 9% margin for error.
“Unker & Physia” – My very first web series! Co-written and co-starring me as Unker. It has been referred to as “quirky”, “awesome” and “really awesome”. Mostly by me, but other folks seem to enjoy it as well; however, I insist that you judge for yourself how utterly, unbelievable awesome it is.
